lost in the mountains...

Scott and I had this great idea to go on a hike around the trails by his work last weekend since he was technically on call and we couldn't venture to far away from Oxnard. BAD IDEA! The hike started out great, and then we got to this point were there was a U in the trail and it seemed like the trail would bring us back to where we started, this was not the case. We started out at 9:30 am and hit the U at about 10:30, so we were thinking we should be back to the car around 11:30 to eat our lunch on the rocks at the beach. At about 11 am his phone started ringing, it was his work, but because we were in the middle of the mountains his phone kept cutting out. We keep walking on the trail thinking we were heading back and since he technically has to be able to get into work within an hour we thought we would be fine. Again, wrong! At about 11:15 we look like we are further in the mountains than we were 45 minutes ago and we still couldn't get any reception. Then we ran into a few bicyclists and asked which way to go as were at a fork in the road.(This was a very literal fork in the road and we were both pondering which way was the "right way" and to be honest, had we not asked we would have taken the other path and who knows where we would have been!) They steered us in the right direction but also let us know we were about 5 miles away from the end of the trail!!!! At this point Scott is flipping out because he might have to go into work and we have no idea when the hell we are going to get to our car. We started running on the trail and finally made it to the end at noon. One would think that we were finally ok, but we came out very far from where our car was and for a while we didn't even know which direction to go to find out car. At about 1 pm we finally reached the car and our lunch!

This by far was the most intense adventure I have been on with Scott. We figure that we hiked about 10 miles and probably ran about 3-4 of those miles......
